Part II Description

  • Ichiro AokiEmail author
Part of the Fisheries Science Series book series (FISHSS)


The capability to collect a broad array of data using various platforms and instruments for sampling and observing marine organisms and their environments is currently progressing to encompass a range of temporal and spatial scales. Chapters in this part of the book describe three representative methods for fishery and ecosystem monitoring: biological sampling, hydroacoustics, and catch-based stock assessment, which are commonly used methods worldwide in fisheries science.
